Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.

My first is a number, my second another,
And each, I assure you, will rhyme with the other.
My first you will find is one-fifth of my second,
And truly my whole a long period reckoned.
Yet my first and my second (nay, think not I cozen),
When added together will make but two dozen.

How many am I?

4, score =20
4 = 1 fifth of 20
four score years is 80
4 + 20 = 24 ( two dozen )

You deserve a slap for making an exact copy of the already existing riddle. Shame on you Naveen! Hang your head in shame.

Hmmm. I am so smart, I end up being dumb. I worked out the math bit. i.e. It had to be 4 and 20 to satisfy both of the arithmetic clues. But, I couldn't see how 4 and twenty rhymed. Never thought about score.
Good one!

Score is not a number! It's like calling fathom a number...one two three four five fathom seven.... I don't think so.

this is too easy, you don't even need to know that they rhyme but; i,m sure that's only a throw off.
